You deserve expectations of safety at work.
If you’ve been injured at a construction site, you’re entitled to fair compensation. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is dedicated to ensuring the health and safety of America’s workers. Through the years, OSHA has instituted a number of standards to improve workplace safety throughout the US. However, the construction industry remains one of our country’s most dangerous professions. Each year, hundreds of construction-related fatalities occur, along with countless construction-related injuries. Many of these injuries are preventable. Despite having federal and state regulations in place, many construction sites remain unsafe.
If you’ve been injured at a construction site, a number of legal theories may be brought, depending on the reason you were at the construction site and the manner of your injury. The law in Michigan differs for a private citizen injured at a construction site versus a construction worker who was injured on the job. A private citizen may have a number of different legal theories that they can pursue, while construction workers who are injured on the site have a much more narrow avenue of recovery for their injuries. Either way, consulting with an experienced and knowledgeable construction accident attorney like Jeremy Tiedt will help ensure you receive the compensation you deserve.
You may have questions about negligence or who is at fault for a construction accident. You may have questions about what to do immediately following a worksite accident. You may have questions about the worksite accident statute of limitations in the state of Michigan.
